About

Keywords: Tolkien, Christ, Your Empire and Your Desktop

Crusade – a mechanical windmill desktop spins on its axis looping a posse of medieval avengers and a MIDI sample of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir”.

GodsEye is borrowed from the computer gaming term God’s eye perspective which positions the player as a God/General/Wizard floating above the world – awarded total control over cities, armies and minions. GodsEyecosists of several computer sculptures that make up a techno-/neo-medieval landscape built around the functional hardware elements of a computer desktop environment: keyboard, mouse, monitor, tower, etc. Formally, it draws from the subcultures of custom computer case modifications, hardware hacking, computer game modification and sampling.
